Abstract
In the article titled ?Evaluating the Hemodynamical Response of a Cardiovascular System under Support of a Continuous Flow Left Ventricular Assist Device via Numerical Modeling and Simulations? [1], there were errors in equations (4) and (7) that should be corrected as follows: (1) In equation (4), the left ventricular volume change (dV_{lv}/dt) was described as the difference between flow rates through the mitral valve (Q_{mv}) and aortic valve (Q_{av}): In equation should be as follows: dV_{lv} dt = Q_{mv}  Q_{av}. (4) (2) In equation (7), the HTA model and the circulatory system model were combined to simulate the CFLVAD assistance using the equations which describe the left ventricular volume change (dV_{lv}/dt) and systemic arterial pressure change (dp_{as}/dt). In equation should be corrected as follows: dV_{lv} dt = Q_{mv}  Q_{av}  Q_{HTA}, dp_{as} dt = Q_{av} + Q_{HTA}  Q_{as} C_{as} . (7)equations were used correctly in the computations and errors appear only in the text.
